mosin nagant
 
Hey guys, I'm in the process of trying to find the right mosin. Knowing that a lot of you are mosin owners, what a I looking for and what's the right price for one?

I was at the local gun show yesterday with the intention of buying a mosin myself... I managed to walk out with an SKS instead. But the mosins ranged from $90-120 out the door including a sling,toolkit and bayonet

If there is a Dunhams near ya, they usually have several 91-30s in stock.

A common Mosin Nagant 91/30 can cost between $80-$150 or so depending on the Armory mark, Tula vs Izhevsk, bore and stock condition and receiver type, round vs hexagonal.

The Sniper variant will cost a bit more as will the 2 popular Carbine models, M38 or M44.

In all cases matching serial numbers will add some dollars to the price.

Be prepared to work a bit to get your Mosin in range-worthy shape, these rifles have been stored in Cosmoline for decades and a thorough stripping down of all metal parts is needed to get the goo off.

It appears no one has mentioned the Finn Mosin-Nagants, e.g., the M39. These are widely considered to be the peak of Mosin development, at least as far as service rifle versions are concerned.

The Finn M-Ns are built up by the Finns on Imperial hex receivers, as a rule, with new barrels, stocks, sights, and in some cases, a tuned trigger.

The M39 is well worth seeking out.

Regards,

Walt

You're welcome! It ain't all that much of a living, but it does give me the excuse to have a lot of guns!

Back on topic; I've been skinnying down on my Mosins; the Finns (three M39s & an M27) will be the last to go...though that's not likely.

Regards,

Walt

And you are looking to collect? A shooter?

Simple 91/30, as shooters, can be had for @ $90 over the net.

Now, if you're looking to collect, you want to try to find a hex

receiver(more accurate and older) and matching SNs.

If you're looking for a carbine, the M44 is the cleanest, cheapest

and easiest you'll find, with nice punch, and insane muzzle blast.

A great truck or Boar gun.


The Finn M39 is arguably better,rarer, and more costly.

There are some very respectable collectibles out there. I

recently found a 1933 Tula Hex with all matching serials.

I've seen them for as low as $89.00 at Dunhams but they aren't in the best condition from what I seen at my local Dunhams
